Within recent weeks Trinidad has been seeing the rebirth of volcanoes thought to have been dormant or long dead, as in the case of the Tabaquite and the Devil’s Woodyard mud volcanoes.
Now, an exciting rediscovery has been made in Rock River, Moruga. This one is different from the other two, as it is composed of not only mud, gases and water—but tar. The viscous, sticky substance is being ejected continually from below the earth’s surface via several vents throughout roughly an acre of estate land.
